allergy free, biggest looser, food, gluten free, breakfast, banana split

Here is a yummy and somewhat healthy breakfast treat that a friend introduced me to from the Biggest Loser Club.

Biggest Loser or not, we all enjoyed it as you can see!

You need bananas, yogurt, chocolate syrup and nuts (if desired) and/or granola (for a NON-gluten free version). I left the nuts and granola out due to food allergies.

    Delish! I had my “nut cereal” this morning. Just different nuts (in my case, pecan halves and sliced almonds) and a sliced banana with some honey and milk (df is fine). No grains needed. I love easy breakfast like yours and mine. Mine didn’t have chocolate syrup though. Hmmm …

    Hey, Jessie, did you know that your blog was one of about 75 gluten-free blogs to be reviewed by the great gf publication, Easy Eats? I was thrilled to be on the list, too (because there were lots of wonderful gf blogs that weren’t). Then they awarded gold, silver, and bronze medals to 15 blogs. Very cool. You can subscribe via I think they’ll email you the latest issue right away. It’s not available online I don’t think, so let me know if you need me to email it to you.

      Wowie! Thanks for letting me know, I didn’t have a clue. I’m somewhere off in Lala land. I’m still claiming mom brain, at least for a few more years. How long until I have to come up with a different excuse? Anyhow, thanks for telling me. Shirley.

      Sorry for the slow response, somehow your comments always get sent to spam no matter how many times I approve them. 😦

    Sounds like my banana recipes: Banana and nut butter or sunflower seed butter and sometimes a drizzle of chocolate. That’s when it’s dessert for my son.

    Breaky for me: banana (or other fruit) in yogurt w/ a tsp of milled flax n a few walnuts.

Sourdough Update

Many of you have been checking back for results on my sourdough creation. At the moment it is still a science experiment, but a happy, bubbly experiment. Never fear, recipes will be here! I did make a beautiful, moist and delicious loaf of sourdough using yeast and a myriad of other ingredients but I'm still trying to create something more user friendly. Wouldn't it be awesome to have a starter on the counter that you could add 4 things to and have a loaf of bread by dinner? Mmmm! Attempt #1 - rose well but resulted in a dense chewy blob Attempt #2 - rose ok but was thin and lifeless then fell and another dense (not so chewy) blob Attempt #3 - to the dogs! Attempt #4 - A sourdough pancake success see post under what's for breakfast gluten-free goof? Ongoing - I've tried several more times and am going to try a completely different approach on the bread starting this week. (Mar 18). My sourdough is still happy on my counter and it makes great pancakes but it's a lot of work just for pancakes. Keep checking! April Update: She is still kickin and I'm still workin on a yeast free, gluten free sourdough loaf! May Update: My sourdough "pet" has been dried and retired until next baking season. I've traded her in for a hotter model, the BBQ! :)
